I often have nights of ongoing insomnia and I was doing some research on l-theanine to help me sleep.  I've tried calcium, magnesium, holy basil and chamo tea and they work so-so.  I'm currently taking one cap of St John's wort (without anything else) and that works so-so as well.

So, two questions.

1.  Has anyone successfully used l-theanine for insomnia?

2.  Has anyone used Tranquility Base (which contains l-theanine) for insomnia?

Thanks everyone!

for U, the lovely A's, some fine melatonine, just 30 minutes befor bedtime .... or just some
valerian and or some vervaine tea just before bedtime. Hope that fits good luck

Thanks for the recommendations.  I tried lowering the St John's Wort dose and thus far it's working superbly.  I have a rather high tolerance to just about everything so I tend to overdose a bit when I'm trying something new.  

The recommended dosage is two caps (so of course, I took three) and that was WAY too much.  I'm down to one cap before bed and that's allowing me a great night's sleep, peaceful dreams and feeling good in the morning.  Trial and error on that one.

l'theanine creates alpha-waves, so obviously you stepped into nirvanic sleep ..ahaaa you are also a person who thinks *lots will help lots* ...... he-he-heee I know that as well ......but sometimes smaller dosages are working better than heavy hammers ......it depends on what is to be reached .....for........
